I've been running Mobil 1 0W-40 in my Mitsubishi 6G72 for 3 years now. The stuff I buy locally is the "New Life" formula and is blended in Belgium. My intervals have been 5,000 miles, which I feel comfortable with, considering the 98 RON/93 AKI gas I burn in this engine is Euro II rated with a sulfur content of 500 ppm. The color of the oil has always been a golden yellow to very light bronze. I got my last batch of Mobil 1 0W-40 through the APO, which is the American version. The oil has just under 2,000 miles on it right now and looks like this right after I pulled it out the tube: I'm not sure how the color will appear on your screen, but it's burnt orange with a red tint on the dipstick, and I'm not sure what those solid particles are suspended in the oil. I wiped the dipstick clean, put it back in, pulled it out and the solid particles are still there. Any takes? I've been under the impression that the 0W-40 offering was a global formulation, so I'm not sure why I'm seeing this with the American version compared to the Belgian stuff I was using for 3 years.
